August 30 2007: an new NIH grant on image-guided surgical platforms for single-port surgery

Professors Nabil Simaan (ME Department) and Peter Allen (CS Department) recently recieved an NIH grant together with Dennis Fowler. This $1.2M 3-year NIH grant is titled “Image Guided In Vivo Tooling Platform for Minimal Access Surgery”.The goal of the grant is to support research on novel image-guidded robotic-assisted surgical approaches to Less Invasive Surgery (LIS). This research project will study the design, telemanipulation control, image-guidasnce, and the efficacy of of novel flexible snake-like robots for single-port surgery.

The preliminary work for this project was carried out at ARMA with the participation of Ph.D. student Kai Xu.
